: This book consists of chapters 10-17 of the Holder/DeFranza/Pasachoff text. Visually oriented and intuitively motivated, the text includes specific computer and graphing calculator exercises. Written clearly and providing detailed explanations, the authors lead students beyond the basic process of learning theorems, axioms and proofs, and emphasize the creative and practical aspects of calculus. The book is characterized by some prevailing themes: the authors are mathematically careful, especially for key topics, and combine an intuitive approach with appropriate rigor; and authors have developed their explanations, examples, exercises and applications with the goal in mind of truly teaching the topics of calculus. Boxed steps are provided when appropriate; caution notes alert students to potential pitfalls in problem solving; attention to examples and exercises has been painstaking. Focused on conveying to students the power and utility of calculus, the text emphasizes applications other than purely mathematical ones.
